Motown Records celebrate their 50th birthday today. The Motown sound provided much of the soundtrack for my early teenage years and I count myself extremely fortunate to have experienced this wonderful music while I was still a teenybopper.

However, the celebrations will be tinged with sadness, with the news that the legendary Funk Brother, Joe Hunter has died. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6332959.stm

Mega egg on face time...humble apologies...I've just been informed Joe died on Feb 3, 2007...

Great interview with Barry Gordon by Tavis Smiley today - Barry's stories about Stevie Wonder are hilarious.
